Background  This is the third item from this manufacturer that I have reviewed, and I am quite enthusiastic about the product line.  This particular item is meant for all MiG-23 Floggers except the MLD variant.  The MLD pitot tube (item number 48-059) is also available.

The Review Product

The parts are packaged in a small zip lock bag, stapled in a folded, heavy paper stock display hanger.  The parts are also sealed in a small envelope of clear plastic film taped to a heavy card stock stiffener inside the bag. Also included is a small set of instructions.

A small instruction sheet is also included that shows the installation.

Application

I planned to use this pitot tube on the new Trumpeter MiG-23M, Flogger B.  Installation is a simple matter of drilling out the opening in the kit nose part, applying a touch of super glue, inserting the pitot tube, and it's ready for paint. That simple, but what an improvement over the kit pitot tube!

This aftermarket set is recommended for those modelers wishing to add that special detail to their MiG-23 model.  This is a short review for a small part that is super detailed.  These guys are amazing!  Highly recommended.

I wish to thank Master Model and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this product.
